All students will participate in highly individualised programmes that lead to greater independence in their everyday lives. On entry to the provision, personalised learning and development aims for each of the students are established based on the outcomes identified in their EHCP, and through various assessment information, which are used to inform the basis of their learning pathway. Their personalised programme is then further developed according to their individual strengths, interests and aspirations.
All specialist support and input, including speech and language therapy, behaviour support, physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and mental health support is coordinated with learning and integrated into daily activities. Learners have daily opportunities to develop their communication skills and make relevant personal choices and decisions.
Students are supported to make sense of the world, both socially and through language and/or other methods of communication in every activity. A Speech and Language Therapist carries out formal and informal assessments to set functional and meaningful targets that can be delivered throughout our curriculum and at home.
At Oakbridge we offer students opportunities to experience and gain skills in a range of vocational areas including horticulture, animal care, catering and social enterprise. Students also have the opportunity to make and sell products at the shop run by our supporting charity, Hearts of Oak.
Our curriculum provides daily opportunities for learners to access local community facilities to promote healthy and active lifestyles. This includes swimming, trampolining, Saracens circuit training, gym and drama at Finchley Youth Theatre. As students develop their skills, we aim to introduce safe and independent travel training, to prepare them for the next stage of their learning or transition to adult life.
